So after ten years I finally made it back up to Maine. We use to go almost every year when I was younger to see family and etc. Unfortunately I got older and the last time I was there I was 19. Ah, to be that age again. Okay, that's a whole different blog, lol. Anyways.....
I had a good time and naturally it went too fast. I went with my parents and grandmother. It was nice to see family and to catch up. Also visited the cemetery to see past loved ones which of course made me miss them.
It's amazing how different Maine can be from what I'm use to. I'm use to going to Starbucks for coffee, the mall, Target, Bars, etc. Maine? I felt like I was in the country which of course was not a bad thing. Where we traveled you didn't see any well known places although the city we stayed in did have a Wal-Mart. It kind of stuck out. You have all these family own businesses and you have Wal-Mart. It just didn't look right. I also found it strange when we would go to restaurants and they closed early. I wouldn't mind living up there but at the same time, I love my Starbucks. I also do love having the option of getting food late at night.
We also did some exploring. Can I just say how jealous of Maine I am? I love Ohio and I will proudly admit it but Maine though was so beautiful. If it hadn't been so cold when we went, I could see me sitting there watching the ocean for hours on top of a mountain. I also wanted to get out my journal to write but the hands were frozen.
I also saw Stephen King's house. I was in awe when I saw it. I have read Stephen King forever so that made my day.
I would love to write more, but I uploaded a lot of pictures and a video and now I'm realizing I need to be up in six hours for work. If you do want to see picture's, go to my facebook page which is http://www.facebook.com/robsad79.
